Notes & Reviews:

It was not until 1840 that, after a courtship strewn with difficulties, Robert Schumann was able to marry his beloved Clara Wieck. This was his 'Year of Song', and Joseph von Eichendorff's melancholy poems of fearful wanderings, images of nature and lonely nights were the perfect vehicle for Schumann's Liederkreis, Op. 39, which he described as his most romantic cycle. From the same year, Schumann's Drei Gedichte, Op. 30 conjures memories of medieval times. The narrative ballad Die Löwenbraut tells of a disturbingly violent love triangle, while the Sechs Gedichte, Op. 36 evokes an idealised, fairy-tale image of Germany.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
This is a music of many moods offering the performers abundant interpretive possibilities, and Bauer and Hielscher meet its challenges well. Bauer is an excellent singer who has established himself as a leading interpreter of lieder. His voice is warm and soft but also forceful and incisive. The challenge in selecting a recording of these songs is that there is so much strong competition.
